IMTS 2016

THANKS FOR VISITING Liberty Machinery Company AT BOOTH N-7259

IMTS 2016 booth

We loved meeting you! This year Liberty Machinery Company set up in the North Building's Abrasive Machining/Sawing/Finishing Section at the gigantic International Manufacturing Technology Show here in Chicago. Peter, Jim, and Austin were on site to answer questions, offer help, and learn about your surplus machinery opportunities. We ran into old friends, developed new relationships, and got up to speed on the latest advances in the field so that we can stay abreast of developing market trends.

We also enjoyed walking the floor, meeting new people, and learning about the cutting-edge developments in all sorts of corners of the manufacturing world. This year's main exhibits focused on additive (3-D) printing and featured 3-D printed cars, modular houses, and medical components. Additive manufacturing is sure to play an increasingly crucial role in the world as this technology continues to develop. But we thought the coolest part was this ice-cream-serving robot at the Kawasaki booth!
